###### Question details

3. Consider a polycrystalline solid subjected to hydrostatic pressure, p, that results in a dilation or volumetric strain given by
∆V/Vo = ep.
The bulk modulus, K, is defined by the ratio p/ep. Using the generalized Hooke’s law, show that

K = E / (3 (1−2 ν)),

where E is the Young’s modulus and ν is the Poisson’s ratio
